So weary. We taught today. We taught 13–year-olds a software program called Maya. It is very complex. I have decided that engineers must have created it. I truly believe that those brainiacs cannot comprehend the many different ways that people think. I certainly realize that I do not think like engineers! They make everything unnecessarily complex. It takes three actions just to move something.
The kids, on the other hand, grasped the concepts and soon they had spaceships flying through their imaginary universes. Traveling from station to station to keep the students caught up while Cyndi lectured was exhausting. I do not know how she does it. Everyone kept asking her for clarification (including me!) and she is able to answer all the questions calmly! Is she human? I am really beginning to wonder.
My daughter was the only female student in the room. Her spaceship was lavender. I kid you not! Kind of cute! All I know is she came home and immediately went to the computer and began practicing what she had learned today. She had two spacecraft flying on my desktop. Very cool.
If any of you are interested in learning this amazing art form, email me and I will see if I can fit you in. It is expensive, but it is worth it. There will always be a market for good animators. It only takes practice and an imagination. And it pays well. That’s all folks! (Link to site).
